Lennon flies in to help convoy

The Mercury: Lennon flies in to help convoy [27jul05]

THE huge pressure on rural Australia is translating into strong support for the Fair Dinkum Food Campaign, says its co-ordinator.

As Premier Paul Lennon prepared to join the farmers, and the tractor convoy continued its trek to Canberra, Richard Bovill said yesterday the message was again reinforced in rural Victoria.

Rallies at Echuca and Swan Hill were well attended, and Mr Bovill said it highlighted the same issues as faced by Tasmanian farmers.

"It's a stone fruit area, and they grow a lot for the fresh market, but what's happening is that everyone is getting less and less of the turnover," Mr Bovill said.
